Home of Contrast Beauty

my Italy, home if contrast beauty
sprawling beaches & rugged mountain ranges
southern torrid summer & northern frigid winter
traversed by many;
Arabs, Byzantines, Phoenicians, Greeks to name a few
a museum of diverse historical & artistic treasures
paintings, marble statues and fountain
gifts from Bernini, Michaelangelo & Raphael
rich local cuisines to keep the stomach merry
a gondola ride in Vernice to bring heart & mind peace
my Italy, home of warm, hospitable, gregarious people
land of poetry music and love
Italy, sweet Italy; mother of sublimity & grace
My Italy, spring of peace & pure life
